sardine search

  • s

What fish markets and restaurants consistently sell fresh,local caught sardines? I've only found a few markets in my Santa Cruz neck of the woods and they only have them now and then. I want more. Any advice? Thanks.

  1. Remember, there's a seasonality to the sardine catch. The Monterey Bay sardine run is mostly a summer phenomenon.

      Hmmm. Do the fish head elsewhere or does it get too stormy to fish?
